Recess Helpers

This is an ongoing opportunity for parents.

An extra set of eyes and ears on the lower playground during lunch recess is greatly appreciated. Whenever you have an hour to spare now and then, please sign up for a volunteer shift on our SignUp Genius form.

Dad’s Club

We Want You! Chabot Dad’s Club 2017-18

Our goal is simple: to create a place for Chabot Dads to hang out, get to know each other, and help the school all at the same time. There are a few school events where we’ll play a role (Carnival, Auction and Purple & Gold Day as well as some ongoing clean ups and projects). We’ll be planning meet ups at various Oakland establishments and planning things such as tailgates, game watches, outings, seminars, etc. 

If you’d like to be on our email list and stay informed, please email your name, contact information and the grades (and teacher) of your kid(s) to: Drew McGowan ( We look forward to a very active and fun year ahead!

In addition to this Web site, the following communications tools are available to reach out to the Chabot community:

  • Chabot Broadcast email newsletter, distributed every Thursday during the school year. If you have a Chabot event or community item to announce, email your item (100 words or less) to by 7 pm Wednesdays.
  • Room parents and class e-mail groups
  • Backpack flyers distributed in the classrooms
  • Chabot Facebook page
